In 2021, a martial artist must be able to take charge of, and maintain their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health, read the environment, navigate conflict and adversity, and master the moment by mastering the breath.

Intelligent TRAINING

Learn how to move, protect yourself, and train smart to avoid injuries, while having fun, in a safe, supportive and movement-rich environment. The goal is to be able to train well into our later years, with consistency over intensity, but be able to turn it up a notch when required.

Discover the art and science of Fusion

By leveraging the art of movement, the science of horizontal techniques of Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, and the vertical techniques of Yoshinkan Aikido, Fusion Jiu-jitsu innovates a modern and effective self-protection and movement rich training program for every age. As you learn physical and mental problem solving strategies and techniques, you will gain an understanding of how to navigate life with more ease and efficiency. An integrated program that allows students of all ranks and fitness levels to engage in a fulfilling mind, body and spirit workout.


There’s nothing quite like the feeling of knowing that your mind and body are strong, agile, ready and able to do whatever you want them to do. Studying Fusion Jiu-Jitsu teaches students that they can leverage their mind and body’s strength and power to accomplish things they never thought possible. Over time, it increases everlasting self-confidence and inner security – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of personal life.


Fusion Jiu-Jitsu is an adventure-based personal growth and life skills training program, that will help you get in to the best mental and physical shape of your life. It’s a great way to sharpen your mind, energize your spirit, tone your muscles, and control your emotions.


Every martial art teaches self-defense and physical fitness, so how is this one different? Fusion Jiu-jitsu takes a no non-sense approach to martial arts training. Bindner Academy believes that life is too short to learn impractical moves and irrelevant information. Our style is timeless and 100% useable every day. The thought of having to defend and protect yourself against bigger, stronger assailants might be scary, but Fusion Jiu-Jitsu is designed to help you overcome your fears and anxiety. By teaching students the essential awareness, conflict navigation and physical life skills, Fusion Jiu-Jitsu cultivates peace of mind, balance, and a deep sense of preparedness in the lives of it's practitioners. As a resourceful adult, one of the most valuable things that you can do, is learn how to preserve and protect yourself, your family and your way of life!


Integrating movement and stretching techniques, Fusion Jiu-Jitsu uses breath to link the mind with the body, for greater mobility and strength. Let’s face it, life is more enjoyable when we can move freely, without pain and discomfort. Not only will you receive the physical benefits, such as increased flexibility, stability, durability, dexterity, cardiovascular function, agility and balance, it has been proven that physical exercise also stimulates cognitive capacity. 

The Fusion Lab UP-GRADE

In the regular adult program, new students start training with a cooperative partner instead of against a resistive opponent, (solo and/or with a grappling dummy during Covid-19), to understand, feel and practice the movements and techniques. If and when the student desires to challenge their knowledge, skills and abilities with a resisting opponent, they are invited into the Fusion LAB up-grade program.

D. Davis, Business Owner

I hold Fusion Jiu-jitsu and Sensei Derek Bindner responsible for putting me on a better path in life that I am still on today. It is not only a great workout, it teaches you that when the going get’s tough and your brain is screaming at you to stop, you really can push past that and actually learn to enjoy or embrace the challenge at hand. I feel that has translated into not only me being in the best physical shape of my life, at 42 years old, I also feel I can make better decisions as a business owner and more importantly, a father. I now crave taking on new physical and mental challenges and conquering them… and then of course passing on that knowledge and mindset to my children, and others, and leading them by example.
